Vitumnus

| |

The fetus receives viva, often known as the vital force or power of life, from Vitumnus.

He is referred to by Augustine as the vivificator, the “founder of life,” and is associated with Sentinus (following) as two “extremely obscure” deities who serve as illustrations of the Roman pantheon’s erroneous priorities. He contends that these two deities ought to be counted among the di selecti, the “select” or major deities, rather than those who rule over physical processes like Janus, Saturn, Liber, and Libera. The names Vitumnus and Sentinus most likely focused on Jove’s functions.
